Colts’ Offensive Line Doesn’t Need as Much as You’d Think

The paramount gripe about the Indianapolis Colts for the last few years has been the performance of the offensive line, and for good reason.They have the NFL’s next superstar quarterback in Andrew Luck under center whom they need to protect, and they have struggled to get any semblance of a rushing attack established, not having an individual 100-yard performance since 2012.To...

Please Stop Talking about Vick Ballard

I like Vick Ballard. He seems like a nice guy, a player who will commit to the franchise, work hard and contribute to the community. Those kind of guys are valuable. But we have to stop talking about him. It’s nothing against Ballard, but there is absolutely zero reason why he should even be considered as the Colts address the running back position this offseason. For some reason...

Horseshoe Mailbag: What direction are the Colts heading in?

The Indianapolis Colts have already made news this offseason for cutting several veterans like LaRon Landry, and Ricky Jean-Francois.This has allowed Ryan Grigson to have over $30 million in spending come free agency in just a few weeks. So where does that leave the Colts as players in free agency? The Colts were over paying both Landry and Ricky, so the extra cap space there is...

Is Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck at the top of this week’s QB Rankings?

Quarterback is the most important position in all of sports. That’s why teams are so willing to pony up big bucks to a signal caller when they have (or think they have) a guy who can do the job. One look at the highest paid players in the NFL will support this fact; it’s a list littered with QBs. But part of the equation is also tied to supply and demand. Sometimes, teams are...

Should the Indianapolis Colts Draft a Running Back in the First Round?

Going into the 2015 NFL season the Colts have many glaring needs. As usual, they need significant help along the offensive line. There are holes on the defensive side that need filled. And, what’s going on with the running back situation? Will Ahmad Bradshaw return and be able to produce? Will Trent Richardson finally reach bust status and be released? Will Boom Herron continue...

Release of RJF Exemplifies Colts’ Free Agent Struggles

The bloodbath of cap-saving cuts continued on Monday with the release of defensive end Ricky Jean Francois, a move that wasn’t completely expected, yet not surprising. Jean Francois was a charismatic locker-room presence who was never short of a quote for the media. He was a leader on the defensive line despite just arriving in Indianapolis in 2013.

Colts release Ricky Jean Francois in salary-cap move

  The Colts have released defensive tackle Ricky Jean Francois in a cost-cutting move. Indianapolis had signed Jean Francois to a four-year, $22 million contract in 2013. But the team on Monday chose to take the salary-cap savings of nearly $5 million. That could give the Colts more room to reinforce its offensive and defensive lines in free agency. Jean Francois started 23 games...

Will Colts Pull Trigger on Ndamukong Suh?

Colts Combine Update: Mike Adams Likely to Return, Pass Rusher an Offseason Focus

Well, if you expected the Colts combine interviews to be full of fluff and limited on interesting information, you are the big winner! The most asked-about subject was Deflategate, since all the east coast media was in town, which made for a depressing and rather uneventful day.

Why would the Colts — or anyone — be interested in Frank Gore?

The Indianapolis Colts have committed some serious blunders in their continued pursuit of a good running back. This is a franchise that hasn’t had a 1,000-yard rusher since 2007 and two years ago traded a first-round pick for mega-bust Trent Richardson. Apparently, they haven’t learned that backs a) are worth a dime a dozen, and b) do NOT get better with age. That’s because...
